We’ve all been there. Trying almost every skincare product on the market and spending tons of money just trying to get rid of the acne, dryness, or fine lines and wrinkles.
I certainly have had my fair share of that. I have struggled with acne for about 6 years now. And I have noticed when I eat certain good-for-you foods, my skin looks more clear.
So today I wanted to share with you 8 superfoods to eat for clear skin, whether it be for acne, dryness, or anti-aging.
Cherries are packed with antioxidants, which is not only great for your overall health but also great for your skin. Other antioxidant filled foods to try – berries, green tea, and spinach. Try this recipe for a yummy breakfast.
These are a great option for getting enough water in to your diet. If you’re not the greatest at drinking enough water, try eating some cucumbers daily. Cucumbers contain 96 percent water.
Other foods that have loads of water are zucchini, celery, and lettuce. If you like to infuse your water you can try this recipe for a refreshing and non-bland option.
Packed with vitamin C, oranges are a great option for your skin. Not only does the vitamin C in oranges protect your skin against the effects of aging, but it is necessary for collagen production, maintenance, and a great antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the skin. Get your vitamin C!
Oatmeal is a humectant that helps keep moisture in to help relieve dryness. You can get it in forms of moisturizers, soaps, and you can even make a DIY face mask. Give oatmeal a try for a glowing, dewy appearance to your skin.
Walnuts can help reduce skin inflammation and breakouts. They are also a good source of vitamin E and B-complex vitamins. The vitamin E helps to protect against harmful UV rays. Grab a handful of them and eat as a snack or try chopping them up and adding them to a healthy salad.
Bonus, since walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids, they are heart healthy since they contain monounsaturated fats.
I absolutely love cantaloupe. This “beauty fruit” is a good source of B vitamins and vitamins A and C and packed with beta-carotene. It has a high water content, anti-aging benefits, hydrates and rejuvenates, and gives your skin a healthy radiant glow.
This breakfast food is not only good for you internally but also good for your skin. Eggs make for great skincare products. Masks, soap, and skin treatments. The egg whites contain albumin which helps tighten pores and clear blackheads.
This delicious leafy green vegetable contains vitamins K, A, and C. Kale can help reduce dark circles under your eyes, tightens skin and reduces fine line and wrinkles. It is also a great anti-inflammatory food which can result in fewer breakouts. The vitamin A in kale is also great in preventing skin diseases.
It’s not all about putting things on the skin but what we put into our bodies. The health of our skin starts from within. Don’t forget to drink your water also!
